Since the Nebulas voting period ends tomorrow, I thought I’d put up my awards eligibility post, in case some voting member of the SFWA feels the need to trawl the internet for last-minute stories to toss in the basket. There’s also the Hugos, of course, for which the voting period ends later.
I have three stories eligible for the Hugos/Nebulas this year.
The first is ‘Weep For Day,’ published in Asimov’s (August 2012 issue). It would fall under ‘Best Novelette.’ It will be reprinted in Gardner Dozois’ 30th Annual Year’s Best Science Fiction anthology. Here’s a preview of it (about half of the story) on the Asimov’s website. It’s also available in full for free at the SFWA forums (only for members).
If you want to read it to consider it for the Hugos, just send me an email and I’d be glad to send you a PDF of the full novelette.
The second eligible story is ‘muo-ka’s Child,’ published in Clarkesworld (September 2012 issue). It would fall under the ‘Best Short Story’ category. Click here to read the full story for free at Clarkesworld Magazine.
The third is ‘Sita’s Descent,’ also in short story category, published in the anthology Breaking the Bow: Speculative Fiction Inspired by the Ramayana (Ed. Anil Menon and Vandana Singh, published by Zubaan Books, India). That one might be harder to find if you’re not in India, but here’s the book’s page.
Thank you for your time!
